USB music : multiple genres per file?

I have a Model X on order and am trying to get ready for delivery.

Considering how pathetic Tesla's support for 'local' music is, I am guessing the answer to this question is no: If a FLAC or MP3 is tagged with multiple genres will the USB music interface show the track under each genre? If so, is there a specific format the genre tag needs to be in? foobar2k, for example, wants to put a ';' between each genre in the tag.

On my first car with USB support I used a Favorites folder instead of making play lists. My last car did not allow one to use folders. Only albums, artists, or songs. The USB in the MX has a listing for folders but ignores any folders without an album or artist name. Is recognizing other folders all that difficult?
